A Taste of history
Fort Monroe sits on a point of land known as Old Point Comfort at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay in Hampton Roads, Virginia. This key area influenced our country's story from the beginning and served as a strategic defensive site for more than four centuries. The fort's last military mission as the US Army's Headquarters for Training and Doctrine Command ended with its decommissioning in 2011.
We're honored to continue discovering Fort Monroe, learning from its failures and triumphs, and telling its stories today.
